This past weekend Children at the Tokyo Mode Gakuen Fashion School had a Frankenweenie Fashion Competition Gothic style! Mini designers and their pup’s paid homage to Tim Burton‘s Frankenweenie with a fashion show. Children at the Tokyo Mode Gakuen Fashion School were challenged to create a monochrome costume befitting of a Tim Burton film. And the only one to make that call would be Tim Burton himself as he traveled to the school to judge the event. Check out highlights of the show below.
Frankenweenie (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy) is all already in pre-order status and read to ship January 8, 2013.
From Disney and creative genius Tim Burton comes the hilarious and offbeat “Frankenweenie,” a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town learn that getting a new ‘leash on life’ can be monstrous.

Last week before the New York Comic Con, I got sit down one-on-one with Jordan Hembrough. from Travel Channel’s popular show the Toy Hunter and from Hollywood Heroes. I am huge fan of his show so I have to admit I was pretty nervous going into the interview. My index cards full of questions went blank, yikes! so I just started randomly blurting out questions. Lucky Jordan is a real cool guy and super friendly, which made the interview easy and fun. And I found we have a few things in common. Check out the entire interview below and you can catch Jordan on the Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT!
One of my fans found this cool split screen photo of Yolandi Visser from Die Antwoord and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie character “Weird Girl” (voiced by Catherine O’Hara). “Weird Girl” is an very eccentric girl and one of Victor’s classmates, who is obsessed with the psychic predictions of her cat, Mr. Whiskers. Yolandi Visser is a south African singer/rapper known for her animated personalities. I did some digging and found out the connections get weirder. Sofia Coppola played the live-action “Weird Girl” aka Anne Chambers (as Domino) in the 1984 Frankenweenie and as you can see Yolandi and Anne Chambers both have a Hello Kitty infatuation. See below.
